586 ft - wading to Bluegrass is not possible
29.89 inHg and falling
Not much change in the conditions over the weekend. The water level has held at 586 ft which is still abot 4 ft over normal. It should begin do drop today and open up a few more places to fish.Â The slowest moving water in a high river will be close to the banks. And because the water gets a bit muddy after big a rain, the cleanest water will be found along the river’s edge as well. At the end of the line the best bait to use is a lively minnow or nightcrawler on a jig. I’ve fished like this many times and minnows give off more scent, more flash and more vibration as they try to get off the hook. In dingy waters this gives a fish something to zero in on.
Orleans park and white street areas produced a few white perch and bass over the weekend so those will still be the best areas t try today.
